Note: Refer to audio player below to listen to this episode.

Now retired, Irene currently manages the Self Improvement Blog and hosts the Self Improvement Show on World Talk Radio. She lives in Scottsdale, AZ and has two sons and three grandsons.


250sq_edrugstore.jpg


Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Irene Conlan


Eric Michaels: Deepak Chopra and many others have made statements such as, “If you want to know what your were thinking 10 years ago, look at your body today. If you want to know what your body will be like 10 years from now, look at your thoughts today.” What do they mean by that?


Irene Conlan: Science has proved that our thoughts and our emotions cause chemical reactions in our body that can be detected on a cellular level. Candace Pert made a breakthrough discovery when she found various peptides in the cell after certain powerful emotions. Bruce Lipton has published several books on how what we believe – that is, our repeated thoughts – affect our biology. We used to view the body as a machine. Under that belief we could treat everything with either medicine or surgery and expect results. We didn’t always get them but often we did. It was discovered that a placebo often gave the same result  But now we know with certainty that we are holistic. Our mind, body, emotions, and spirit work together and when one gets out of whack the entire being is affected. A couple of new specialties have emerged based on this thinking – psycholneuroimmunology and epigenetics. Psychoneuroimmunology  is the study of the interaction between psychological processes and the nervous and immune systems of the human body and epigenetics  is the study of changes in gene activity that do not involve alterations to the genetic code but still get passed down to at least one successive generation – factors like diet,  diet, stress and prenatal nutrition can make an imprint on genes that is passed from one generation to the next.  Notice stress – which comes from our thoughts and emotions in reaction to a stressor. So what they’re finding is that our thought patterns – not just random thoughts, but thought patterns – and our emotions have a powerful effect on our physical state.


Eric Michaels: Can you give us some examples?


Irene Conlan: Several years ago I was teaching a class on psychosomatic illness and a student told her story. It seems she absolutely hated her job and as time passed she dreaded getting up in the morning because she had to go to work. And her thoughts and words often turned to, “I just can’t stand this any more. I can’t stand it.” Over time she developed a problem with her feet so she literally could not stand. She was a fairly “aware” person who understood the power of the mind – she just hadn’t been tuned in to how frequently she held this thought and how strong the emotion was that she connected to it. She chanced her thinking, replacing “I can’t stand it” to a positive affirmation. She also found another job – one that was perfect for her – and her trouble with her feet went away. As a hypnotherapist  I worked with two post-heart transplant patients because they had both gained too much weight which was putting stress on their new hearts. Over a period of several sessions I learned that both had been adopted and both were struggling with the concept, “What’s the matter with me that even my own mother couldn’t love me?” Regardless of the love that each of them had found in marriage and their own families, this though accompanied by powerful emotion had not changed. They quite literally suffered from broken hearts.


Eric Michaels: If thoughts  are so powerful how do we go about dealing with difficult situations and changing our thinking?


Irene Conlan: We work everyday to change our thinking. There are several steps:
•    You start by becoming self aware. Become aware of what you are thinking and what you are feeling. As difficult as it may sound, you can make a conscious decision about what you want to think and how you want to feel and how you want to react to negative events.
•    Replace the negative thoughts with positive thoughts as soon as you notice the negatives. It’s like changing from “Oh, good God, it’s morning”  to “Oh, God, it’s a good morning.” Or “I never do anything right” to “I’m successful in almost everything I do.” It isn’t enough to simply say it, you must mean it and feel it as well.
•    Find ways to input positive thoughts and incorporate positive thinking. E.g., read books on  positive psychology, happiness, or humor; watch uplifting TV programs (if you can find them or shows that have humor.  Be with other people who are positive and don’t have pity parties and woe-is-me sessions.

Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Dr. S. Kaila


Eric Michaels: What is the Jump6 program featuring the intragastric balloon?


Dr. Kaila: This is a very unique weight loss program that's different than anything else out there right now. It's not a diet and it's not surgery - it's kind of in between both...it allows people to lose 40 pounds in 6 months without having surgery and without all the risk of surgery...


Eric Michaels: How is this different from other procedures like the lap band?


Dr. Kaila: Very different. It is not a surgical procedure and you will not have to be put to sleep and does not involve cutting...lap band and by pass have potential problems in a sense that you can have complications that are fairly significant - especially with the by pass...with the balloon, it really isn't a surgery - what we are doing is sliding a balloon into your stomach and filling it up with water - without cutting this is a very big plus for any patient and is attractive...


Eric Michaels: Who is the best candidate for the procedure?


Dr. Kaila: The balloon is indicated for anyone that has a BMI of 25 or more and that would classify anyone that is overweight - so if you look at the statistics - 59% of people in Canada fall under the overweight category with a BMI of 25 or more. In the United States it is actually higher - so there are a large amount of candidates for this procedure...

First of all what get all of the information required, their id's, their names, their objectives, medical history should they have any and then the evaluation involves me assessing the client by looking at them in four different positions - standing from the front and back and both sides, and then looking at them lying down face up & face down - what I look for when I do that is, I look to see if the shoulders and hips and knees and ankles are level with one another - to see if the eyes are level if the ear are level with one another...


Eric Michaels: What are the benefits of working out at your exclusive private gym?


Jon Jon Park: First of all, they get a very no-nonsense approach to their training....the gym is an international phenomenon and it has grown exponentially - very rarely can you travel today and not just in America but internationally where you don't find a gym of some type in a decent hotel today - all hotels have decent gyms so people understand that it's an important part of ones life but unfortunately when you see people exercising they are wasting a lot of time doing things that may not be suited for them. They may be causing more problems in certain areas that they have and it is just a matter when they come to our gym they get a no nonsense approach and they get educated in the process and helping them at the same time achieve their goals that they want to and to do it safely and effectively with no or minimal risk of injury...


Eric Michaels: How many times per week do you recommend exercising to stay healthy?


Jon Jon Park: I would say at least three times a week. Some people work out twice a week but I always tell people at least three whether they work out with a trainer or not they should get at least one work out on their own...

Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Dr. Larry McCleary


Eric Michaels: You're recommending a higher fat diet in your book Feed Your Brain - Lose Your Belly. Isn't that bad for you?


Dr. McCleary: Well I think many people might think that because we have been on a fat phobia for a number of years but I would like to address that in two ways. The first is to talk about one of the biggest experiments in mankind's history and that started back in 1977 when George McGovern was a Senator and his Senate select committee made dietary recommendations for Americans. At that time heart disease was starting to increase and so was our waste line...


Eric Michaels: Why is that good for the brain?


Dr. McCleary: The delicate fats that I am recommending in the book that are what I call brain healthy fats help keep brain cells flexible. You have to be flexible to respond to the literally trillions of signals they get every second and that is the basis for all of the functions that our brain does such as being awake and aware, recognizing our children, being able to perform at work and do well in school and if you eat more fat in the diet and especially if you avoid the manufactured carbohydrates that are on our grocery store shelves now, you will avoid the sugar surges...


Eric Michaels: What are the good fats?


Dr. McCleary: Well I think your listeners will need to know about five types of fats...they are found in nuts and seeds such as sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and a whole variety of nuts...and avocados which is an oily fruit - these are the building blocks for the membrane in brain cells for all of these functions occur... your mom always told you to eat fish - that's brain food...

Do Your Large Breasts Make Your Back Sore?

Rebecca Savich, Inventor and President of Contour Table Systems, who has created an innovative new massage table designed to support women’s breasts and people of all body, shapes and sizes.

Note: Refer to audio player below to listen to this episode.

After a 3 day cross country drive from Los Angeles to Pennsylvania, Rebecca Savich spent 5 days trying to get in touch with Jeff Riach, President of Oakworks, (a leading Manufacturer and Retailer of massage tables).  “I drove to Pennsylvania without an appointment but figured when I did get a hold of him, I wanted to be there and ready.”  When Rebecca finally spoke to Jeff, he invited her to come in for a meeting the next day.  He was going to give her 15 minutes.  The 15 minutes turned into 2½ hours, they shook hands that day and “The Utopian” and “The Euphorian” began to take form.

Rebecca’s company, Contour Table Systems signed a deal with Oakworks, Inc. in August 2009. “Although I have lived in Los Angeles for many years, I am proud to have been born and raised in Pennsylvania. I love that Oakworks is based in Pennsylvania and that their products are manufactured in the USA.  For me, it’s like paying homage to my home state. The fact that they are a family-owned business with incredible ‘green’ values, made them the right choice for me.”

As a naturally endowed woman, Rebecca faced major discomfort when lying face down getting a massage. “It’s a Catch-22 situation.  I received massages often because my back aches from carrying my breasts, but the massages that were meant to help my back, would hurt my breasts!” Her own “breast distress” turned into a personal quest to invent a device that could be built into massage and medical tables. The ABC System (Adjustable Breast Comfort system, patent pending) was born.

It has been an amazing journey for Rebecca to finalize the deal. Her story is riddled with obstacles, determination and many ups and downs. “I owe a great bit of gratitude to my friends and family who supported me through this. But most of all, she dedicates her project and success to her mom. “Without her, I would not have been able to do this,” she says of her mom Sandra K. Savich (1948- 2005) in whose honor Rebecca has set up the Sandra K. Savich Foundation. Contour Table Systems is dedicated to donating a portion of its proceeds to various charities through her foundation.

A bit of a renaissance woman herself, Rebecca graduated from the Art Institute of Philadelphia where she majored in music marketing, media and project management. She created and wrote “The Adventure Brigade,”’ an online children’s animation program in development. She is an award-winning photographer, a certified scuba diver and has been a member of Screen Actors Guild since 1996. For more information visit ContourTableSystems.com.

Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Rebecca Savich

Eric Michaels: What prompted you to invent a device for massage and medical tables that adjusts for different breast sizes?

Rebecca Savich: I am a naturally large breasted woman. When you carry that kind of weight, you need to get massages because your back is always sore. I had tried many different masseuses, many different places and tables and it was pretty much the same thing - they would roll up towels, put them under your shoulders and the pressure that they would apply to help my back was actually making my breasts sore which was counter productive...

Eric Michaels: Tell us about your ABC System. Other than adjust ability for breast comfort, can the Contour Table Systems platform perform other functions?

Rebecca Savich: Well the ABC System itself is a cushioned platform that moves up and down throughout the table. The whole top is a cut out and it moves so that's where the adjustability comes from but the great thing about this is, that it does actually have other functions, whereas it raises above the table - so when the client is laying on their back it can actually use it as a head rest so the therapist doesn't have to hold up the back of the neck...

Eric Michaels: Please tell our audience about how your tables work and who would most benefit from them.

Rebecca Savich: The first table that came out last year is called the "Utopian". It's a portable version and with this table it is simply, the platform itself is raised up and down with an airbag that is used with a quick pedal so it just puts air into the air bladder and it makes it go up and it has a simple release valve that allows the air to go out so it can lower and it's light weight...it benefits everybody - men and women....
